May primary election in Indiana is drawing near



Indianapolis, Indiana – There is still one week left for candidates to register to appear on the ballot for the Indiana 2024 Primary Election.

Candidates who want to be on the Democratic or Republican primary ballot must submit their corresponding declarations of candidacy by noon on February 9th, according to the Indiana Secretary of State’s office.

“It’s been great welcoming candidates into the Secretary of State’s Office as they officially file their candidacy,” Indiana Secretary of State Diego Morales said in the release. “In the final week of filing, it’s important to make candidates aware of the approaching deadline. The 2024 Election season is starting off strong as we are anticipating a massive turnout.”

The Indiana Election Division and the Secretary of State’s Office announced that they will be taking filings from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays through 12 p.m. on February 9. Election officials are not allowed to accept files after the deadline under Indiana law.

The county clerk’s office is where candidates for non-judicial county posts, township positions, school board positions, precinct committee positions, and state convention delegate positions register their declaration of candidacy.

Minor party candidates, independent candidates, school board candidates, and write-in candidates will all submit their separate declarations of candidacy for the November general election later this year, following the hosting of the May primary, according to the announcement from officials.
